Starting its listing journey ages and ages ago – 95 Butternut Hollow finally has a deal. In 2008 the asking price was $10,500,000 exactly where it expired 183 days later. Then in 2010 it was brought back to market for $9,500,000 and reduced to $8,850,000 – then onto another realtor where it was listed and expired at $7,195,000. This agent went for it again in 2013, no doubt with the story that the market has improved and listed slightly higher at $7,450,000, then $6,399,000, $6,399,000. $5,950,000 to the present $5,695,000 – my guess is that it will the closing price will be somewhere closer to $5m. It was built in 1936 and it sited on 4.5 acres in 2 acre zoning…
95 Butternut Hollow Rd – $5,695,000
74 Valleywood Road – Cos Cob – $1,395,000
Not surprising, under $1.5 – and this street always seems to get the buyers…close to everything, cute neighborhood with a sense of pride…this 3 bedroom, under 2000SF house has found a buyer
6 Rockland Place – OG – $725K
This little charmer also has a deal, and again not surprising…cute, tucked in and around R& zoning off Forest Ave – may be an end user since it was not a cash deal – but who knows….will definitely close to asking price…
52 Benjamin Street – OG – $1,349,000
Starting at $1,575,000 2 years ago, the price is finally to a point where perhaps it is will close somewhere close to $1.2m. There is a lien history that started when the property was first listed for sale…mostly tax liens…by the time that the owner pays liens and the mortgage balance, there most likely will not be much left.
The art of the deal transcends all businesses, and more so in real estate than in many other professions. For the client, it's often an emotional purchase or sale, rather than a simple commodity or luxury item. I make it my mission to have each side come to terms with a transaction that works for everyone. It's not always easy, but good things in life usually take effort - something from which I've never shied.
Licensed since 2009 as a real estate sales agent in CT & NY, I often work with clients on the border of both areas.
With sales and distribution experience for luxury designer products, and watching/reacting to the markets, my acumen for sales was established. Achieving success and contributing to the growth of many global apparel designer brands, such as Giorgio Armani and Paul Smith for over 20 years, it was time for a change. I wanted to explore another passion that would keep me in one location rather than traveling the globe.
Now I have the best of both worlds, a successful business as a fulfilling personal life. My husband and I have lived in back country Greenwich since 2003, where we enjoy easy access to great biking, hiking and golf. We love to ski and that's usually where our travel takes us.
Life is good in Greenwich!
